Our vision – Achieving Through Learning

Education is an ever evolving area, often throwing up challenges which we believe should be seen as opportunities. At Nelson Academy we want to work in partnership with children and their families to ensure that every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. We are the foundation of a learning journey which will last far beyond each child’s time with us. At Nelson Academy we will endeavour to work hard to ensure that your child receives the very best educational experience and in return we expect the best from them.

We strive to create a safe, friendly environment in which everyone is valued and given the confidence to be inquisitive and love learning. We shall provide experiences which inspire the children to thrive as part of a growing community with high aspirations and opportunities for all.

The ethos of our school is one of inclusion, equality, excellence, enjoyment and very high expectations and aspirations.
